Anonymous, 16 Aug 2020Why doesnt America ban Quallcomm? It looks like these products are a threat to security. Qualcomm IS an American company. It's like asking why China won't ban Huawei - it makes no sense.
Also this type of problems cannot be 100% avoided anyways.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2020I hope they will fix it because their chips are the best.This is just a myth that Qualcomm is better. In fact, Mediatek is doing equally well in terms of chipsets.

Anonymous, 15 Aug 2020Snapdragon Soc are just a big hype.Cause it's more powerful than others, they hate Snapdragon want to sell cheap and buggy like exanous, mediatek etc. BIG HYPE RIGHT

If that means only certified devices are allowed to be sold in your country, or all devices have to be examined, and all updates examined (at governments sole expense) so be it!

Anonymous, 14 Aug 2020I know, this fix is doneThat's what you think. Keep tuned!
I keep getting pissed when I read something like "As long you download apps from trusted sources like the Google Play store you should be safe." don't people Know that viruses and spywares existed and can be found in the damn store?!
Of course the Americans knew, his are they going to hack your phone without you knowing. That is the place where you would put them, because nobody normally would be interested in looking there. Now all the .... are going to look at the new drivers and we going land up with hackers aswell. I imagine that the hardware makes it possible. This spells trouble for the American chip market. The Chinese will just push ahead with their own. Arm might be better off moving their design centre back to England, or to Iceland, to avoid foreign contracts being caught up in technology bans. Soon, leading tech will be off shore. The manufacturing tools will be off shore, and frankly banning use of manufacturing tools after sale because they might be used to manufacture devices for undesirable, is something that could be appealed to various trade treaty organisations etc, nasty stuff. Because treaties give them big sanctions.

I think what people are not happy with is the hypocrisy displayed by the western countries.
When their companies get caught up in such issues, to them it's okay but when a Chinese company is caught up, they claim it's a deliberate move to leave backdoors.
All companies should be judged using the same standards and held accountable the same way not this double standards we normally see.
You guys are killing me. Huawei is not facing criticism because of security vulnerabilities. lol
The other day a report from Australia found Huawei built a data center for PNG that was riddled with security flaws. Were they incompetent or was it intentionally designed to be exploited without detection? I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, but based on the comments I've read below, Huawei is perfect. They are best of the best so where does that leave us?
This report does not imply Qualcomm did anything to gain access to personal user info. It sounds like their coders got a little too complacent or they were incompetent. Did Garmin purposely leave themselves vulnerable so hackers from Russia could exploit them for millions of dollars? C'mon now, there is a difference here.

Things to make you upgrade to the latest ... moreMakes me appreciate companies and developers like /e/ Foundation, Marvin Wißfeld (the man behind microG), and Daniel Micay (the man behind GrapheneOS). At least, they are doing their initiative on protecting privacy rights.
For the first time in years I am happy with having an Exynos SoC in my phone. LOL
